of our land use in california. i think there has also been an increasing recognition in recent years that ceqa serves many important purposes, but at times it goes beyond its intended purpose and has become a tool to obstruct, delay and at times significantly increase the costs of projects, including very, very important public projects. it happened here with the north beach library and bike plan and other projects. there has been dialogue in sacramento and throughout the state about the need to reform ceqa, so it fulfills its purpose without going beyond that purpose and in san francisco the process that we have in our administrative code for ceqa appeals adds to the concerns. i described this at a hearing at booker t. washington as the wild west in san francisco. because we provide very, very loose timelines, in terms of when people can file a ceqa appeal at the board of supervisors, people sometimes file appeals months or years after the department -- the planning department issues a ceqa determination. this legislation will among other things tighten that timeline, so that peop
district one or four here, since we are on the committee here and in district one, the one california feeds into and starts by the ocean. but this is not in district one but the california because it feeds into it, we can prioritize to 40th? >> we would have to look at where the improvements where, make sure improvements are serving the priority development area. if we do all improvements out at 40th, we would have to balance those two things. >> okay. >> priority development areas, these are established at the local and regional level in 2007 and 2008, really areas that have land use plans taking on growth. >> i fully understand that again but i think from an equity perspective -- we can talk about that. in certain areas they say zero dollars of improvements, we talk about a lot of the board and commission here about making sure different areas of towns see improvements and see government working for them. district four and the streetcars that go downtown, i guess that is a question when you get back to mtc goals, i agree. that makes a ton of sense. how do you balance that out. when you ta
, the way we read it, it doesn't allow for any kind of monetary penalty. clearly a violation of california penal code this section 308 only allows for us to do a suspension on the permit, which was what we did in this case. >> how did you arrive at the 30 day determination? >> i took over this program. actually this was the first round of cases i received when i took over this program in april. i continued the policy that had been in place, my understanding, for years of a 30-day suspension. so i just continued the existing and standing policy the department of public health has. >> 30 days for first offense, even though you could suspend up to 90 days? >> correct. the hearing officer, of course, can reduce or increase up to 90 days or reduce to one day based on the discussion at that hearing. in this case he didn't reduce it at all, nor increase it. >> are you finished? just one question. historically, a number of years ago when these appeals first started showing up here, there was a lot of discussion between the financial impact and in some cases there were data presented as to how
investigator with the state of california, my expertise is in fire suppression and fire safety. i've taken a look at the plans related to this permit process and specifically i have come up with two violations of this permit process which are extremely important issues that need to be discussed. first of all is keep in mind, please, that this home is bound on two sides by other properties at a zero lot line. in other words, in the event of an emergency you have no exit from either side, only from the front or the rear. with that in mind, in the event that an emergency occurs, and let me also remind you that the building code uses the term emergency, not fire. because you could have a natural gas emergency which causes an explosion, you could have an ert -- earthquake and so on. what i want to make clear is that the egress from the rear of the structure is into an area that has no legal access to a public right of way so as a result they would be required, the minimum distance from the rear of the house for safe area would be 50 feet. currently they have plus or minus 57. if the plan is

. but for the rest of the world, the difference between oakland and san francisco in the great california economy -- we have slipped a little bit. we are now the eighth largest economy in the world. the rest of the world sees the bay area as one unit. in china, they see us as a golden triangle with san jose. there is the port, the bank. they think san jose has silicon valley. we know that is all changing. we are merging more and more into one economy. as jerry brown used to say, and this is the perfect setup with all the economic factors -- they are running out of space. our space is cheaper and more plentiful. as he used to say, it is faster to get to downtown san francisco from oakland than it is from most of san francisco. so i am glad that you came. we will grow together and will prosper together. i was going to get you chocolate hearts for valentine's day. did not have time. but we have a little fortune cookie we are going to give you at the end, a small remembrances. but the main theme of wanted to talk about today is that oakland is on the rise, and we have -- i will not go into all the bo

the speaker of the assembly, one of the highest ranking democrats and labor leaders in california, john perez introduced legislation to allow families who are middle-class to receive, i believe a two-thirds reduction in their tuition at state universities. unfortunately the legislation did not pass, but he pursued it. guess what? in san francisco 150% of ami is just slightly above $150,000 for a family of four. and of course san francisco has a much higher cost of living than the state as a whole. so if speaker john perez says that middle-class for a family, for the whole state of california goes up to $150,000 a year, then i think it's incredibly reasonable to say that the same is true in san francisco, even though it's much more expensive to live here than it is in most of the state your full name i did just want to make that comment because the argument is not well-taken that to state 120-150 is upper-middle class than middle-class. >> supervisor campos. >> i don't think having a different perspective is disparaging and it's one of areas where there is room for disagreement. from my pe

of the river in order for water to get to ocean much faster. narrator: cities throughout southern california converted natural rivers to these concrete channels, part of their storm drain systems. this allowed expanding development without the need for large flood plains. kharaghani: the los angeles river is approximately 51 miles. concrete reduces the size of the river that you need to carry the water because it speeds up the flow of water. if you'd like to remove all the concrete and to have natural system to carry the water to protect you from flooding, you need to have almost one mile on each side of the river set aside for transport of rain. so in order for the city to have use of those lands around the river, concrete made it possible to have minimum land so the water can be carried to the ocean in the fastest possible way. but, unfortunately, because of population growth and poor housekeeping, people are putting a lot of pollutants on the street and the streets are the openings to our stormwater sewer system. in an average year, 4,000 to 5,000 tons of trash ends up in long beach. man:
